When a reader sent me an e-mail on how Sarah Palin’s ex-son-in-law-to-be was not made welcome at a swank Hollywood Party this weekend, I begin to feel sorry for the teenager:
His fifteen minutes of fame are running out. His usefulness to those who promoted him is beginning to wane.
Were he older, I would have little sympathy for the guy. But, because he’s so young and comes from a messed up family (thanks to the MSM’s Palin obsession, we know all about his mother’s drug problems), it’s no wonder he was subject to the blandishments of the media. One wonders if some “journalist” helped promote his split from Palin’s daughter Bristol by making promises to the handsome young man of a career in Hollywood.
For certain figures in the media clearly delighting in promoting him so as they could better destroy their favorite villain in the post-George W. Bush era, the grandmother of his child. He took their interest in destroying Palin as a real interest in him and giving a kid from rural Alaska a chance in the big city.
Levi Johnston to the media is like Jay Gatsby to the New York socialites who attended his swank parties, but missed his funeral. They loved him for the entertainment he could provide, but didn’t care about him as a person. So it will be with Levi–when he can no longer help them advance their agenda, they could care less about him as a person.
And given how young Levi and lacking strong guidance from his parents, he may well have assumed that the media interest in his story indicated that Hollywood folk were interested in his career.
